South Goa holidays are relaxed with a slower pace to life in quiet fishing villages scattered around the coast.
The district of South Goa covers the entire southern part of Goa state with the Arabian Sea to the west, the Uttar Kannada district of Karnataka in the East and South. Despite many years of tourism, South Goa still remains relatively untouched outside of the hotels. There are lots of small lanes winding through the lush green countryside where it is not surprising to see cows and pigs wandering aimlessly across the road like they have all the time in the world! The beaches are some of the finest you will find anywhere in the world and whichever resort you choose you will find peace and tranquillity.
